Destination Project One Step Closer For U-of-L

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The University of Lethbridge has completed the first phase of planning for their Destination Project.

 

An update on the project was presented to council last week by president Mike Mahon.

 

The Destination Project will include construction of new science facilities that will house a significant part of the science teaching and research activities on campus. There will be a revitalization of University Hall and the construction of a new central plant to support the science building. The project will add 35,000 sq. meters to the campus footprint.

 

Mahon says they've finished the first scope phase of the project. The University is now choosing between eight architects to complete the project. They plan to choose an architect by March or April.

 

"When you have an opportunity to do a project of this significance, you want to make sure on the one hand it's as technologically advanced as possible, but how can technology really support the uniqueness of the building and that will be a big part of the consideration as we move along." said Mahon.

 

The University received $212-million from the province to fund the project.
